Friday Dance Party

Standard

Happy Friday to all my fellow worker bees. Another week is in the books and already (I can’t believe I’m saying this) Halloween is next week. This weekend I’m bouncing around LA with friends and getting back into my yoga routine.

If you need a pick me up today, Little Mix (aka adorable British girl group) released their music video for the song Move this morning. I’ve already watched it 3 times. It’s awesome and dancey and fun and will WAKE YOUR ASS UP THIS MORNING. So go listen to them and take a 5 minute dance break in between doing your hair and brushing your teeth. Or maybe dance it out while brushing your teeth and use the toothbrush as a microphone so when you sing, it’ll look like you’re foaming at the mouth with rabies. On that note, have a great weekend everyone.

Today, The Struggle Is Real…But It’s Okay.

Standard

I woke up this morning and could barely move my body. As in, walking is a struggle. Yesterday I went to yoga with one of my friends and the instructor decided that it would be a good day to “kick up” the workout. The aftermath is me not being able to move.

But I think I’ll survive. I have to persevere BECAUSE I have 2 shows to see this weekend. Today Little Mix is performing in the courtyard for an E! taping and I am so excited to see my favorite British girl group. Plus it’s free. Free is always good.

Little Mix will be a good warm up for the big show on Saturday which will undoubtably be one of the greatest nights of my life. Because…because….because….

I’m seeing One Direction at Staples Center.

I’m not even going to try to say how excited I am because it would end up looking like this KEOENOAOGNEOANOHELNEA OMG. Instead I’m going to say that I am so excited to fangirl over my favorite 5 British boys and dance like an idiot with flailing limbs and sing all the words to their ridiculously catchy pop songs. It’s going to be 3 hours of happiness and dancing and awesome.

In conclusion, Happy Friday everyone. We survived another week. I’m gonna go do my favorite thing in the world this weekend and go see live music. You all should go try and get some sun this weekend, everyone needs UV rays. They just make you happier.

 

New Music – Little Mix

Standard

When I work out, I absolutely HAVE TO have a good soundtrack to run to or else it just isn’t going to work. I am also the person who tends to need very uptempo songs with a similar beat to my strides when I run or else I end up looking like an idiot.

If you read my blog, you know I have a soft spot for trashy pop songs. About a month ago I was introduced to Little Mix, an all girl band that won the UK X-Factor last year. With the combination of my love of trashy pop songs and group harmonies, it was inevitable that I would fall in love with them.

Perrie, Jesy, Jade, Leigh

Perrie, Jesy, Jade, Leigh

Little Mix consists of Perrie, Jesy, Leigh and Jade. They are British (automatic cool points) and are the first group to ever win the X-Factor in any country. Their X-Factor story is actually kind of awesome. The 4 girls each auditioned as solo artists and were all turned down. Then they were all given second chances and were called back to be formed into groups. Perrie and Jesy were put in one group and Leigh and Jade were put in another. Both groups were then eliminated but the judges decided to take all 4 girls and try one more group combination and BOOM Little Mix was formed. My personal favorite of the 4 is Perrie because she has an unreal voice. She sang “You Oughta Know” for her X-Factor audition and killed it. Not many people can do that and not look like an idiot.

They released their debut album in the UK this past November and have just recently been signed to Columbia Records in the US which is a partner with Simon Cowell’s “Syco Music” UK label. So it’s safe to say you shall be hearing of them here in the States sooner rather than later and let me tell you, you’ll love them. Even if it’s in a private playlist on Spotify.

And just so you can see how cute they really are, you can watch their music video for their first single “Wings” here. Someone has GOT to teach me how to do the stomping thing.
